We are running our popular series of Open Gardens events again this year, between May and September. Our team of volunteer gardeners have been very hard at work to ensure the gardens are ready for this summer!

Visitors will be able to explore the Chapter House Garden, Cloister Garden, Canons’ Garden, Dean’s Garden and the Bishop's Garden at their own leisure with our team of volunteer garden guides on hand in each garden to answer any questions. This is a self-led event where you are welcome to enjoy the peaceful and beautiful gardens at your own pace. Why not visit at the cathedral cafe afterwards for a refreshing drink and cake?

Wednesday 13 September

We will be offering two sessions throughout the day: 

Morning Session: 10am - 12.30pm 

Afternoon Session: 12.30pm - 3.30pm (last admission 3pm) 

You are welcome to arrive any time within these sessions. It typically takes around 40 minutes to view the gardens, but this event is designed to work at your own pace. Please ensure that you book for the correct time slot as we will not be able to change this once your ticket has been booked. 

Accessibility Information: the chapter house garden and cloister garden are both easily accessible for wheelchairs. The canons’ garden, Dean's garden and Bishop's garden have some areas with sloping lawns, gravel paths and a few steps so are less accessible, but more accessible routes throughout the gardens can be suggested. If you require a carer’s ticket for this event or any further details on accessibility, please contact [email protected]  

Questions and queries can be directed to [email protected] or call 01432 374 251. 

Tickets cost £6, to book tickets please proceed below. You will receive a confirmation email after your booking which will act as your ticket. Please bring this with you on the day, either printed or on your phone.

We recommend booking in advance but tickets will also be available on the day from the cloister entrance.
